"Like (in the newly anachronistic sense of the word)"

From one Caelevin commenting on Language Log  (  to a post about a new  "Community Page"  for Language Log which has been automatically generated by Facebook:

I have not previously liked Language Log on Facebook,  I do not have it liked now,  I do not intend to like it in the future.

I like  (in the newly anachronistic sense of the word)  unportaled access to the site.  In this my like is implicit,  as well as antisocial.

Life was so much simpler when I got out of bed this morning,  but being possessed of a porch,  a cane and the Will to Scold,  I am intent on keeping the Interwebz off my lawn,  at least for one more day.
